Adams Morgan dinner tonight
If I have to eat in this neighborhood tonight, which restaurant would you pick for best food? Can't go too expensive, so no Cashion's. Otherwise, extremely casual to medium-casual is fine.
Is there seating in that Super Tacos place on Columbia Rd? I haven't been there in a long time.
Is the food at the Diner at all acceptable?
Thanks for all the suggestions guys. My friend actually had a great idea to try out the new Korean karaoke place, because she'd heard good things about the food. Muzette, right underneath Himalayan Heights at Kalorama. We really enjoyed it a lot, and this was a tough Asian food-eating crowd. Though certainly a little expensive (as Korean always is), I would say this is a lot better than my experiences at Mandu. They have a lot of rice dishes, noodle dishes, those big pancake things, soups, quite a long menu. My friend and I shared those noodles they make out of sweet potato, cooked perfectly with veggies. Very very nice. And we shared a HUGE vegetable pancake. Servings are large. The panchan were also delightful. These people are serious about food quality. I am looking forward to trying some more dishes.
The decor is sparse and there was a distractingly strong smell of disinfectant cleaner in the air, but the food is totally worth it!
hamster -- if it's not too late -- I think the old Pepitos, Super Tacos, has a couple stools. What about Old City? Haven't you recommended that before? There's also a Pica Taco in the Argonne Building, on Harvard. For less casual than those, I haven't been in a long time, but liked the food at Bourbon. At the Diner I would only order eggs or maybe grilled cheese. (Tryst has some okay sandwiches and a new build your own salad menu that's not bad.) If you'd be able to go a little further, into Mt Pleasant, the pint and a slice deal at Radius is great. Not sure any of this is what you're looking for, just trying to be a little helpful.... Oh and there's also those couple Peruvian chicken places.

If I was going to eat in Adams Morgan, I'd go to the Black Squirrel despite the bouncer who assaulted my then-fiance because I didn't have my ID (for an early dinner). The food is above solid, especially for that area. We actually miss going because it's so good - we might have to try to brave it again. With ID this time.
